Bias - vs - Radial IROK's
« on: Sep 15, 2006, 11:54:40 AM »
I know several people who have and do run the bias IROK's but have never met or spoke with anybody who runs the radials.  I know the bias wear "VERY" fast but they also work "VERY" well (just from what I have seen).  Do the Radials work as well and how do they drive / wear?  I currently have Bias TSL's and am about done with them and they way they drive :driving: on the street.

I welcome any and all feed back if you have it. :yesnod:

Thanks

I would guess that the radial IROKS would not do quite as well as the Bias ply, but they'll still tear it up! :thumbs: Also, they should hold up longer, and run better on the street.  If you're tired of your bias TSLs, I'd definitely stay away from other bias ply tires.

Wow, just a ton of feed back on this post .....

Does this mean nobody runs the radials or does this mean nobody has any feed back?

I ran the 36" Bias Ply IROKS on my 1/2 ton Ram for 21/2 years street and off road.  I loved them.  I now run 38" Super Swamper Truxes radials and they SUCK!!!! :thumbdown: They suck off road as well as on the road.  I can not wait for them to wear out so I can get ride of them!  The Bias Plys IROKS even ran smother on the road then the radial all terrain Truxes tires.  DONT BUY TRUXES!!!

I run the IROK radials for about 2 years now and they are about 30-40% with like 15,000 miles on them. So they last a little longer but are still very soft rubber. They ride nice on the road even at 85mph. They dont do too good with normal air pressure. I have problems just going up flat slabs with street pressure in them but when you air down to 8psi they do pretty damn good. Iv heard in the snow they will hold a bead at 4 psi...The soft rubber really grabs the granit and the side wall flexes well.

I have the bias iroks, and they work wonders.  they do wear out quick, i would recommend them on a trail only rig.  if anything else, go with the radial.  I have seen the radials work, but it's tougher, and requires lower air pressure, and they slice more.  bias will flex around sharp objects better.  just my :twocents:

Sounds like that overall the bias ones work better on the trail and are tougher :_order: against puncture and provide a "so - so" ride on the street. (after they have warmed up ) :flamer:

The radials drive very good on the street, you need to drop more pressure to make them perform as equal as the bias but are not so resistant to sidewall damage.

Am I close?????

That pirate post was fairly helpful, thanks Dirt Toy Boy! :thumbs:

from what i have seen that does sum it up pretty good.  I still don't think the radials will ever perform as well as bias though on the rocks.
